I just got to start to try fondant (mmf) and it is sticking to the table. what can i do? I have tried on the table, on a mat and on wax paper what can i do?
Edit: Thank God for husbands! When he got home I told him what was happening and he told me he read to put cornstarch on the table to stop it from sticking. Problem solved!
Personally, when i'm rolling out fondant to cover my cakes I use shortening on my mat, and then for fondant pieces I use constarch. Not sure if this is correct, but its worked for me so far.
I still had some trouble with the fondant sticking to the cutters and even the roller occasionally. I'll try shortening next time as I had to use a LOT of cornstarch to keep it from sticking and still even had a couple small spots stick.
She's right a little shortening really does help.
